As a speaker, Mr. showed a great improvement, the results will press. Although this has been the big- gest question brought before the peo- ple of Canada, and has been the most exciting electoral contest for half a century, doubtless everybody is glad it ia over. Even excitement gets monot- onous, and for nearly a year the peo- ple of Canada nave been exercising their minds over the question of reci- procity more than over anything else. This has been unique election. There was really one question before the people. The government negotiat- ed a reciprocity agreement, but the op- position refused to allow the Parlia- ment to adopt it, although the large majority of the members were in fav- show whether or not he has improv- ed a-s a leader and general. A very disagreeable feature of the campaign was the racial element thai was forced into It by the Conserva ?Q party In the English provinces by loyalty cry and the bugaboo of an- nexation as a result of reciprocity. On the other hand, th-eir allies ,in Quebec, led by Bourassa, wagred an anti-British campaign In order to de- 'eat Laurler in his own province.

Nevertheless, in the estimation of impartial observers, it win appear that tho experiment is being carried along in Vancouver on lines broad enough to exhibit with sufficient strength and clearness all that is meritorious in lite plan. As- sessments are made, annually, and since the elimination of improvement taxes began, thera has beyii, it is said, a steady increase in valuations of real estate, and notwithstanding a very general opinion that the slngfc tax would tend to depress values, in arriving at tile valuation of land, the practice in Vancouver is to get as nearly as possible to ihvt last selling price. The assessment is made on a jasis of 65 per cent, of this valuation; luis, a lot valued at f is taxed at SfinO. .If two pieces of property ly. i ng side by sidy are tinder cunsidera- :iou, ;ind one bears a 13-storey build- ng, while tha other hag a four "storey j structure, the owner of the hitter must pay the same taxes the owner of the former.

The method of at- matterjo tihe final Judges, the elect-j tack, no'doubt, turned many Conser- vatives from their party, as they con- sidered it an admission of a paucity of arguments along economic lines, while many more doubtless regretted the plan of attack, but stayed with their party. For the first tinve in the history of Canada since Confederation, has there a regular line-up of the ors of Canada, fgr a decision. The pea pie took up the Issue, and have divid- ed themselves, not so much along party lines, but rather for or against reciprocity. In nearly every constit- uency the personality of the candi- dates was teft out of consideration al- together, many meetings baring been held where their names were not "ev- en mentioned. The whole question TVaa reciprocity. In this respect the campaign, all itll! admit, has been pleasantly unique. Th-a contest hw not been without notable features, some agreea-blfe, some otherwise. Many will regard the remarkable campaign put up by Bir Wilfrid Laurler as most note- worthy feature of th-e campaign. Ncaring Ms seventieth year, having; borne the 'burden of the premiership of Canada for fifteen and the leadership of his party for five more, Sir Wilfrid, wlioie frlendy can Jiratly call him "Canada's Grand Old has carried on a fight that many a younger and mora robust political warrior would have failed to accom- plish. His energy and hav-o 'been remarkably, his reasoning most convincing, and his eloquence Inspiring. He coverod the whole country east of the Great Lakes, speaking ninny tlme-j each day for nearly sis weeks.

The fight was one of the cla-ss'es against the masses, and it remains to scon tonigiit whether the gneat voting pub- lic have exercised th-air independ- ence of thought suffici-ently "to break away from the domination of th-a "interests" in order to get what clearly ia in thfeir best interests. Locally the campaign has been a clean, stand-up fight. It has not been a question as between Mr. Ma- gralb and Mr. Buchanan, except as these gentlenren represented the two sides of the great issue. The candi- dates are both estimable gentlemen, commanding the respect of whole community. Mr. Magrath has had a fair fight waged against MB policy, has also Mr. Buchanan, except from ono source, which shall nume- tess, 'because so Insignificant..

Meantime building in Seat- tle has been almost at a standstill, and the contrast has evidently im- pressed the people of that city with the advantages of the Vancouver plan. After noting the effects of the sys- tem in tire city, Mayor Taylor sajis he is convinced that the system should be applied to th-e country in ;eneral.
